Top Five Summer Beauty Favourites

As the temperatures soar in the mid-twenties and the humidity is amping up whilst the sun shines down, I find myself scouring through my makeup bag for my top five ride-or-die holy grail products to combat the heat. After all, the last thing I want to do is spend twenty minutes perfecting my creme contour for it to then melt off the second I step out the door…

1. Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer in shade Medium Neutral

This concealer has been my holy grail since 2015 and I haven’t gone back to any other since I purchased this tube of excellence. It has a medium coverage and provides a great under-eye highlight. The formula glides well with the help of its doe-foot applicator. Long lasting throughout the day and doesn’t crease!

2. The Body Shop Liquid Eyeliner in shade 01 Black

I have been using this eyeliner since I was a teenager and always find myself reaching for it in my makeup bag time and time again. It’s a classic and, as someone with oily skin, I struggle to find a decent eyeliner that provides a great wing and can stand the test of time (or at least the slip-and-slide I call my eyelids…) This eyeliner is victorious in both of these challenges and I am always impressed at the end of  the day when I find it has stayed put instead of giving me a set of panda eyes!

3. Benefit Watts Up Highlighter

The Benefit Cosmetics Watts Up Highlighter is a cult-classic for a reason. Its cream-to-powder formula helps blend the highlight with the rest of your makeup and leaving you with a natural glowy finish. A little goes a long way and is perfect for day and night!

4. Estée Lauder Pure Colour Envy Sculpting Lipstick shade in Rebellious Rose

I am a simple lady: I see rosey lipstick, I purchase rosey lipstick. This one most certainly didn’t disappoint! This lipstick is very similar to Anastasia Beverly Hills’ Liquid Lipstick in “Dusty Rose”. Its creamy formula glides across the lips and stays on throughout the day, even after eating and drinking! Perfect for work, uni, or a day of fun with your pals.

5. Benefit Roller Lash Mascara

I’m pretty sure I have more mascara than sense… I’m always on the hunt for the most volumizing, lifting, curling, lengthening, helping-me-achieve-my-goals tube of noir cosmetic formula. I am currently on my second tube of this mascara and it most definitely lives up to the hype. It gives an amazing lift and curls for days! I always get compliments on my lashes when I wear this and have often been asked if I’m wearing falsies! It’s a favourite all across the board and never leave the house without it.

  1. Keep wanting to get the concelear but am a bit reserved as I have heavy under eye circles that even mac concelear doesn’t cover 😦

    1. Oh no! I definitely recommend this concealer. It was my ultimate go-to during my Final Year at University to hide my dark circles. I recently found my dissertation-selfie on my camera roll and the coverage is AMAZING! I only had 4 hours sleep the night before but you could not tell at all.
